Vita Chambers "Phoenix" Producer Roy LaManna Director Brendan Kyle Cochrane

Awesome I mean really awesome shoot for artist Vita Chambers. I am so grateful to Roy LaManna, Evan, Carl, Christie, Vita and everyone at SRP records for literally letting me run with the project. This was a very well orchestrated multiple location shoot with multiple cameras and production variables involved. I will probably supplement the blog later as I can't talk too much about the actual footage until its released. The footage, track, and the crew worked tirelessly to get the best product given the budget. This one is definitely going to make some heads turn. Big and warm thanks to Vita Chambers who is delightful to work with, Evan, Carl, Christie, and everyone at SRP records, Roy LaManna, Anthony, Max, Graeme, Charlie, Elspeth, Robyn, Natasha, Brian, Marc, the City of New York and the Parks Department. You all made this happen!

Company Expansion

After a six month hiatus Brendan Cochrane and NYLAHD are back in business. There should be a New York Times article coming out shortly which will detail the brief hiatus and which will definitely illuminate the company and personal challenges faced and overcome.
I'm definitely grateful to my fiance Elspeth Brown who held down the company during my absence. Coming from the dance world with aspirations to direct and produce Elspeth will add a different dynamic to the company which I am excited to see as we are already in pre-production on new original programming. We have expanded to a brand new team and are transitioning into original content and new media production. We will of course continue to build upon the success of the music video and commercial world - continuing to build and grow with solid relationships with both companies and people that have gone on to do some great work. The new frontier will see NYLAHD as the premier 'go to' company from everything from commercials, music videos, and viral campaigns to narrative and original programming. We have added some team members which over time you will see blossom and grow as new and exciting projects develop. For now its back to work and stay tuned because its about to be on!
